The Ultimate Flank-Steak Sandwich

  1. Let the meat marinate for 24 hours and then take it out of the fridge.
  2. A good start is to light the grill.
  3. Once it's hot, clean the grill.
  4. Prepare a French roll by cutting it in half, and brushing olive oil on it
  5. When the grill is hot, place the steak on it and set the timer for 4:00 for rare
  6. When the timer goes off, flip the steakand reset the timer
  7. During these minutes, prepare a place for the steak to rest. I use an upside down plate on a cutting board.
  8. When the timer goes off, take the steak off and place in the resting spot for ten minutes
  9. Place the buns on the grill and watch them carefully. They will go from yellow to black in a hearbeat. Remove them before that happens.
  10. Prepare some fixings and prep them
  11. Get your condiments out
  12. Slice your flank steak diagonally with thin cuts
  13. Construct your sandwich keeping careful care to put mayo on the bottom -- this insulates the bread from the juice of the meat. Put the lettuce on the top -- this insulates the bread from the juice of the tomato. This is an art and a science. Don't fuck it up.
  14. Place the sandwich and the condiments on a plate
  15. Serve, and eat!
